Gasket Characteristics at Subambient Temperatures

For gaskets to be effective in their application, the designer of a bolted flanged joint (BFJ) must select a gasket with the appropriate mechanical properties for the application. In any case, the mechanical behavior of the gasket must be known and well understood. Industry testing standards exist to detail these mechanical behavior characteristics at ambient temperature and elevated temperatures that are representative of the temperature conditions the gasket may expect to encounter in service.
